Important Notice for Runners

Please read the following important updates affecting the Carsington 7+ race on Sunday 6th May.
1: Relocated Runners’ Car Park: Due to recent wet weather and following a site visit, Carsington Water have informed us that the overspill car park used for the event specified on the map in the Event Guide is no longer suitable due to the ground conditions and the quantity of vehicles expected.  Despite a good forecast between now and race day, we have been informed that the ground in the overspill car park does take a long time to drain away.  Therefore we have decided to move the event car park to the main Carsington Water Visitor car park: DE6 1ST – please click here for a map.  This car park will be clearly sign posted on race day.  The area will be very busy on race morning and we strongly recommend arriving early and car sharing where possible.
2. Car Park Charge: The car parking charge will now be £2.50, not £3.00 as specified in the Event Guide.  Severn Trent Water have kindly agreed for Carsington 7+ entrants to pay the 2 hour rate of £2.50 for parking all day.  That means you do not need to pay for the more expensive all day rate.  This only applies to Carsington 7+ entrants who park in the Carsington Water Visitor car park and for car park tickets purchased before 9.30am on Sunday.  There are several pay machines in the car park but please allow extra time to obtain a ticket.
